Total Body Barbell Complex Workout

This challenging Barbell Complex works your entire body!

NOTE: A Barbell Complex is a strength circuit where you complete two or more barbell exercises back to back with no rest. They can be used as a workout, or within a workout.

In this video, I’m using two 11.36 kg (25 lb) plates on a 7 kg (15.4 lb) bar = 29.72 kg (65.5 lb) total. Naturally, the leg and glute work was manageable, while the upper body and cleans were intense. I recommend using little to no weight on the bar at first, then increasing as your strength and ability allows. 

Safely perform 8-12 repetitions of each exercise for 3-5 sets.

  1. Stiff Leg Deadlift 
  2. Bent Over Row
  3. Power Clean and Press
  4. Back Loaded Reverse Lunge
  5. Hip Thrusts

As always, be sure to lift safely and work within YOUR pain-free available range.
